"The Q3 and A6 would be launched during the second quarter (April-June) while the Q7 would be launched in the fourth quarter (October- December)," Twinkle Krishna, vice-president, operations, Audi Chennai, said.
This is being done in order to widen the gap with its closest competitor Mercedes Benz India.
Last year, Audi reported sales of 10,851 units in the country, a growth of more than 8% over 2013.
Mercedes Benz India reported of 10,201 units in 2014. It sold of 9,003 units in 2013.
The gap between the two luxury car markers is 650 units, and Audi is looking to embark on an experiential marketing campaign to bring in more customers into its fold.
"Under this, the experience would not be restricted to one test drive alone. Instead, customers can choose to test drive various models in the sedan and SUV (sports utility vehicles) on different days so that they would be fully able to understand all the product features across categories and models," Krishna said.
